Cree’s LMH2+ Delivers an Unprecedented Combination of 125 lpw Efficacy and 90 CRI in a Small Form Factor

Cree’s LMH2+, the industry’s highest performing LED module, delivers 30% better performance than the previous generation in the same form factor. Providing efficacy of 125 lumens per watt with color quality greater than 90 CRI, the LMH2+ is the only LED module that allows lighting manufacturers to achieve a system efficacy of 100 lumens-per-watt with high light quality. The efficacy of the LMH2+ drives new applications, enables smaller luminaires and lowers system cost.

“Cree’s dedication to LED innovation is evident in the LMH2+,” said Wesley Johnson, sales director, Hi-Lite Mfg. Co. “This product is just what we are looking for to satisfy the higher efficacy requirements of our customers.”

Featuring elements of Cree’s innovative SC5 Technology™ Platform, the groundbreaking efficacy of the LMH2+ drives new applications, enables smaller luminaires and lowers system cost. The LMH2+ allows lighting manufacturers to address more challenging installations such as those with space constraints or higher ambient temperatures.

“The LMH2+ is another breakthrough innovation from Cree that delivers more than just an incremental improvement,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED Components. “The LMH2+ enables lighting manufacturers to continue to lead the market in performance and light quality without incurring the time and expense of a major design change.”

The LMH2+ is a drop-in upgrade for LMH2-based designs, providing an immediate boost in performance compared to the previous generation. Like all LMH2 modules, the LMH2+ delivers the same efficacy across all color temperatures. Lighting manufacturers can also leverage existing ecosystems, tooling and optic design elements to accelerate time to market and lower design cost. In addition, UL® rating will be available for maximum and nominal currents to provide more driver options and design flexibility.

The LMH2+ LED Module is available at 1250, 2000 and 3000 lumens and in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K at 90+ CRI. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent, the LMH2+ is backed by Cree’s five year warranty. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals. Samples and production quantities are available with standard lead times from Cree distributors.
